Here are the five winning entries for the limerick competition!
Each of these students received a $20 Whitcoulls voucher.
Thanks to everyone who entered!!! There were some great ones that just missed out.
A website with a terrible name:
A stale dead meme used without shame
I could've won
With my brilliant pun
But I lost and it drove me insane
- Bodhi Brooke-White
(who confessed to bitterness due to his excellent suggestion
for this website's name being narrowly defeated...)
At school there isn't a day
Where I don't seem to lose my way
I go on the wrong floor
Or through the wrong door
And I'm too stubborn to ask anyway
- Felix Quade
Congratulations Felix: you have won a $20 Whitcoulls
voucher, and a complementary map of the school!
There once was a teacher at High
Who had a tear brought to his eye
It became quite scary
When given a query
A student answered "Die, Die, Die..."
- Orlando Cristobal-Mandel
editor: a simple misunderstanding, apparently. The
query in question was 'name your favourite local band'.
We learn at Wellington High
The interests of both you and I
Like the ones and the zeroes
The working class heroes
But you only succeed if you try
- Roman Barlow
editor: no, we didn't pay him to say that. Not unless you
count the $20 book voucher prize...
There once was a boy who was witty
His tests were seen by a committee
They argued and rejoiced
They made the right choice
A high school in Wellington City
- Anthony Cater
The witty committee? Why, that could only be the
judging panel of 'Freshavocado' (TM)!
and.. THE WINNING TEACHER'S LIMERICK!!!:
My favourite cube with a view
Is ideal for a quick number two
For a minute of space
With no kids in my face
It's my throne, my staffroom loo.
- Anita Kirby (Maths).
